The net proceeds from the rental of the Fortaleza apartment will benefit the youth center in Mekelle (northern Ethiopia). Mr. and Mrs. Hässig worked in this center for several months and visit it regularly. Every day up to 700 young people come to this center and are supported. Urgently needed due to high unemployment and since November 2020 also warlike violence.
The panorama over the mountains and the lake is impressive and incomparable! Fortaleza, the name of a Brazilian city, means castle, fortress. Like the city of Fortaleza, our apartment stands above Lake Walen (Walensee) and sometimes above the sea of fog. The exclusive 3-room vacation apartment is part of a modern apartment building (low-energy, "Minergy"-style construction). It is located 2 km above the village center and is directly accessible from the parking lot (handicapped accessible). From the balcony you can enjoy relaxing evenings with beautiful sunsets. Up to 8 people can use this apartment together and share happy, unforgettable joint experiences. The nearest ski lift is within walking distance or one bus stop further up (600m; "Sell" ski lift). By car or local bus you are in the middle of the family-friendly ski and hiking area Amden-Arvenbüel in a few minutes.
Due to its unique location between the Mediterranean-like shores of Lake Walen and the wild mountain peaks, Amden offers a wealth of leisure activities. For example, don't miss an invigorating swim on a summer evening in the refreshing Walensee. Magnificent mountain peaks can be easily climbed and an abundance of delightful hiking tours are waiting to be discovered. In winter, the small but fine skiing area of Amden with the well-known Swiss ski school, mainly easy slopes, cross-country skiing trails, natural ice rink, indoor swimming pool and numerous winter hiking trails will delight you.
Amden is very conveniently situated. Amden is extremely easy to reach by public transport: For example, in only 80 minutes from Zurich main station, every half hour! The centers of Zurich, Chur or Lucerne can be reached in less than an hour by car. Whether hiking vacations or skiing vacations in Switzerland: Amden welcomes you warmly.
